The ranking mirrors other reports that list Colorado as the least overweight state, though a report from earlier this year found the state’s obesity rate is rapidly rising.
WalletHub’s list took into account more than just obesity statistics, however. The site’s analysts also looked at things like rates of high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes, access to healthy food and the number of fitness centers per capita, among others.
Based on those factors, Mississippi came out on top of the list of “fattest” states, followed by several others in the South.
Here are WalletHub’s 10 most overweight states:
2. West Virginia
9. South Carolina
